There are countless philosophies about management and each one will work (in some context).

The Cultivated Management approach though is about getting business results quickly and smoothly, whilst focusing on improving the world of work (i.e. the system that people work in) and treating people like people.

The Cultivated Management approach roughly translates into following:

  1. 70% of your time is spent improving processes, dealing with cross team challenges, improving the flow of work and communication and setting clear and consistent goals.
  2. 20% of your time should be spent with your individuals contributors. Helping them, coaching them, training, listening, recruiting – building relationships.
  3. 10% of your time should be spent improving your own skills, awareness and learning from the work you’re doing (on the job training). I also include in here budgets, dealing with HR/corporate policy standards (perf reviews etc)

It’s common for managers to spend most of their time “managing” people. But good people in a broken system have little chance of success. It’s therefore more effective to spend your time managing the system instead.
